Classroom Environments of Respect for Questioning and Discussion
Robitaille, Yvette Powell; Maldonado, Nancy
Online Submission, Paper presented at The Qualitative Report Annual Conference (6th, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Jan 7-9, 2015)
Questioning and discussion techniques are effective instructional methods that develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. There is often inconsistent implementation of these techniques, which can result in a negative effect on student achievement. This case study explored elementary, middle, and high school teachers and evaluators' perceptions of teaching practices regarding exemplary questioning and discussion techniques. Data included semi-structured interviews of teachers and evaluators, evaluation summaries, and lesson plans. Analysis was inductive using constant comparison to identify themes. Findings indicated teachers who earned exemplary marks on evaluations for questioning and discussion techniques created environments of respect and cultures for learning.
